First upscale brand to open in the heart of Tokyo for AccorHotels
JAPAN KEEPS ATTRACTING MORE AND MORE INTERNATIONAL TRAVELLERS, WITH HISTORICALLY HIGH GROWTH RATE RECORDED IN THE BEGINNING OF 2017
With Japan’s inbound tourism booming, and the 2020 Olympiad just around the corner, we are seeing some very interesting movement in hotel development in the great Japanese metropolis.
The Pullman Tokyo Tamachi is being developed as part of the MSB Tamachi mixed-used complex and will open for the fall of 2018.
Featuring 143 rooms, the contemporary designed hotel successfully connects the international style of Pullman with a delicate touch of Japanese art and culture.
In Japan, AccorHotels has 12 hotels in its network across Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Sapporo and Okinawa. Brands include Swissotel, Pullman, Novotel, Mercure, ibis and ibis Styles. The Group first entered the Japanese market in 1995.
This new business and leisure hotel includes meeting facilities and unique dining concepts. The hotel is directly connected to the JR Tamachi Station east exit and a three- minute walk from the Toei Subway Mita Line. From the hotel to the Haneda International Airport is about 30 mins by public transport and just one stop from JR Shinagawa station to Osaka and Kyoto via bullet train.
“Japan keeps attracting more and more international travellers, with historically high growth rate recorded in the beginning of 2017,” said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia, AccorHotels. “The increasing inbound market, especially from Korea and other Asian countries (China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Vietnam) is on a continuous positive trend which will be amplified as the country will benefit from the worldwide attention with the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympic Games.”
Pullman Hotels & Resorts, AccorHotels’ new generation of upscale hotels, is a cosmopolitan brand that offers hyper-connected travellers a seamless experience that combines contemporary design and energizing culinary concepts.
«The opening of Pullman Tokyo Tamachi marks an exciting step in developing more upscale and luxury hotels in Japan to meet the growing demand of cosmopolitan travellers who appreciate innovative design and wellness in the travel scene. The global nomad is Pullman’s representation of the new generation of travellers and business leaders who fully and naturally blend work and leisure,” said Eric D’Ignazio, Vice President Japan, AccorHotels.
